Premiere Tip! How to Create Subclips in Adobe Premiere

first_imgUse subclips in Adobe Premiere Pro to pull selects and better organize your projects!It’s often best to break your footage up into smaller clips so you can organize, and then locate, specific shots in your project.  This is especially true for interviews, where you may need to locate a specific quote quickly without any visual cues to find the shot.   This is where subclips in Adobe Premiere Pro come in!While you could set In and Out points and then drop those parts on to the timeline this isn’t the most efficient way way to work.  Instead, work through your footage, breaking each clip down into smaller subclips.  Assign each subclip a unique name that makes it more easily identifiable in the project.  For example, the footage in the below clip is called ‘Lakes_Animals’ which is ok, but there are several animals in this clip.  When breaking this clip out into smaller subclips, it would be best if I gave each subclip a name that appropriately represents the animal (or insect) in that particular shot.So how do I do create subclips in Adobe Premiere Pro?First, double click the footage in Premiere to open it in the Source Monitor. Set an In point and an Out point for the piece you want to subclip out.Source Monitor with In & Out pointsOnce you have your In and Out points set out there are several ways to create your sub-clip.Click on the ‘Clip’ menu and choose the second option ‘Make Subclip…’.Right click the Source Monitor and choose ‘Make Subclip…’ from about a third of the way down.Hold the Control key on a PC or the Command key on a Mac and drag the clip to the Project Panel.  You will get this option:Subclip renaming optionMake sure you use this to give the subclip a name that actually means something to you!   For example, if it were part of a long interview, use a title to express what the subject was saying.  This makes it more easily searchable for when you want to find it and add it to the timeline later.  Searchability is key!Re-named Sub-clip & Original Clip with In & Out Points RemovedHave any Adobe Premiere Pro workflow tips to share?We want to hear from you in the comments!last_img read more

Pujara hundreds, Pant banter and Dhoni 2.0: Recapping India’s historic Australia tour

first_imgAfter lost chances in South Africa and England, India, the top-ranked Test side, were under a bit of pressure to shed their tag of poor travellers. Questions were being asked of Virat Kohli’s captaincy and the support staff’s contribution as the Asian giants were led by tactical blunders in the two previous overseas tours of 2018.However, Team India, as conceded by several members of the unit, learned from the mistakes made in South Africa and England and used the learnings to create history in Australia. The focus, as expected, was around Virat Kohli in the lead up to the two-month-long tour. Columns were written about the India captain, he was the central figure in the host broadcaster’s promotional videos ahead of the Test series.When Cheteshwar Pujara showed us traditional Test match batting still works However, Cheteshwar Pujara undoubtedly emerged as the star for the visitors in the much-talked-about Test series. He scored 521 runs from four matches to lead India to their first-ever Test series win on Australian soil. More than the number of runs he had scored, the amount of time he spent at the middle ground down a top-class Australian attack.In a span of 1258 deliveries and close to 30 hours, the man from Rajkot told the world that there is still place for traditional Test batting in the era of franchise-based T20 leagues.Former Australia captain Ian Chappell perfectly summed up the impact Pujara had created in the Test series in Australia.”While the Australian cricket team was keeping a wary eye on Virat Kohli, Pujara snuck up from behind and executed the perfect mugging. In addition to helping India win a series for the first time in Australia, he frustrated a top-class opposition attack to the point of submission,” Chappell wrote in his column for ESPNCricinfo.advertisementBumrah breathes fire! It was refreshing to see the Indian batting unit put behind the memories of failures in South Africa and England and compliment the fine work from the ever-consistent Indian bowling attack.The Indian pace trio of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma made life difficult for the Aussie batsmen and clearly outclassed their counterparts.Bumrah was breathing fire when he had the new ball in his hands. With the old ball as well, his pace and intensity seldom dipped as he cracked open a few helmets during his fiery spells.Pant wins banter battle on Australia tour Not just the battle with the bat and ball, India were also unbeatable when it came to playing mind games. Rishabh Pant was constantly chirping from behind the wickets and won a lot of hearts when he babysat for Australia captain Tim Paine. The photograph of the India wicketkeeper with Paine’s kids shared by the latter’s wife went viral on social media. Unlike the tours in the past, never did any member from the two teams cross the line.Coach Ravi Shastri took pride in the team’s efforts. Apart from heaping praise on his captain, Shastri acknowledged the contributions of Pujara and the bowling attack during his exclusive chat with India Today. The former India captain didn’t think twice about admitting that they had made mistakes on their tours of South Africa and England.MS Dhoni 2.0While the Test series ended with party scenes in the Indian camp, Australia began the ODI series on a high. For Virat Kohli’s men, the 34-run defeat in Sydney meant a rocky start to the World Cup year. MS Dhoni’s 96-ball 51 in the first ODI on Saturday seemingly compounded India’s woes. Cut to January 18, Dhoni was the toast of the nation. The veteran wicketkeeper-batsman, whose mind is heavily insulated against outside noise, proved he still has the goods in him by smashing back-to-back match-winning half-centuries.With three half-centuries in as many matches, Dhoni helped India clinch their first-ever bilateral ODI series in Australia. More importantly, he helped himself by silencing his critics in the lead up to the all-important Cricket World Cup.Virat Kohli was seen unwinding at the Melbourne Park after the ODI series. He was in Melbourne, with his wife Anushka Sharma, enjoying some Australian Open tennis action and posing for photographs with all-time great, Roger Federer.”An amazing way to finish the Australian summer,” he wrote on social media. And that summed it up all!Also See:last_img read more

Montreal sets up hotline for citizens to report coyote sightings

first_imgMONTREAL – After almost 400 reported sightings of coyotes on the island of Montreal over the past nine months, authorities announced on Tuesday a new hotline citizens can use if they spot the wild animals, who continue to pose risks to public safety.Montreal joins several other Canadian cities, such as Toronto, Vancouver and Niagara Falls, that have set up hotlines and put in place other measures to deal with coyotes who inhabit urban environments.Emilie Thuillier, a Montreal borough mayor and the city’s spokesperson on the coyote issue, said the presence of the animals in residential areas needs to be taken seriously.Aside from the new hotline that goes into service on Wednesday, the city formed a committee that is organizing information sessions about coyotes, patrols in various urban parks and door-to-door visits.There have been 379 sightings on the island of Montreal since last June, Thuillier said, but added there is no indication how many different coyotes might be involved.If there are 10 reported sightings in one day, it is usually the same coyote that’s been seen, Thuillier explained.“We know that there have been coyotes in Montreal for the past 40 years and particularly in the city’s large parks,” she said. “They usually wander along railway tracks that pass through residential areas.”She said coyotes are generally afraid of humans and are aggressive in only a few cases, but it’s unclear what triggers the wild animals to attack.“We don’t know why and that’s why we tell people not to feed them,” Thuillier said.Since last June, she said there have been five reported incidents on the island of Montreal involving aggressive coyotes that have snapped at people and nipped at their pants, but no one was hurt.There have also been 10 cases of dogs being bitten, with one dying, she said. Some of the attacks were in her northeastern borough of Ahuntsic-Cartierville.Lesley Sampson, who co-founded Coyote Watch Canada in 2008, said in an interview there’s been a noticeable increase in the number of communities that have consulted her non-profit advisory council.“For me, the increase in the consultations since 2010 has just blossomed,” said Sampson.Sampson said her nation-wide organization, which is based in southern Ontario, has helped communities implement a “humane wildlife strategy framework.”Trapping and killing the animals doesn’t solve anything because more will move in, she said.Sampson noted that Vancouver, for example, has had a co-existence program in place since the 1990s.Carey Campbell, Niagara Falls city manager, says 127 coyote sightings were reported in her region since January 2017, but none were threatening.She said residents began reporting the sightings in 2009.“If there are concerns about the animals going into residential areas, feeding off people’s compost or garbage, we’ll do an education blitz in the neighbourhood,” Campbell said.last_img read more
